My DVF ‘Journey Of A Dress’ - London, New York & Toronto

In an homage to the 40th anniversary of DVF’s iconic wrap dress, I took a suitcase full of them on a trip between London, New York and Toronto. If you’ve been following my Instagram you’ll probably notice it’s been a whirlwind of a week, so thanks for following my #JourneyOfADress!

LIFE via INSTAGRAM - February 10th to 13th, 2013

In this installment of Life via Instagram I struggle to balance NYFW with some heavy media promotion for The Face. I start out at DVF,  go on VH1 with Nigel and then a radio tour with Karolina. The Face mentors and coaches ring the NASDAQ bell and finally I wrap up Fashion Week by taking my Team Coco girl Stephanie Lalanne to her first runway show, Rachel Zoe.

Follow me at @cocorocha for more real-time updates. 

  1. With the legendary DVF backstage at her show.
